Is Lacey’s future in the past?

Lacey is a bright young lawyer with a promising career ahead of her. However, her personal life is in shambles. When Lacey’s boyfriend bails on her yet again, she finds herself talked into attending a fancy party hosted by her best friend. Lacey reluctantly agrees. She has no idea how much that decision will change the rest of her life.

Lacey is a likable character. She’s smart, driven, and genuinely wants to use her law degree to help others. However, she is prone to making rash assumptions. Since she is a lawyer, I would think she would be more open to putting off making decisions until all the evidence has been examined. Unfortunately, she makes many misguided, snap decisions throughout the story that cause her a lot of heartache.

This is extremely clear when it comes to her relationship with Bobby. Lacey misunderstands some things that Sandy, Bobby’s sister, says about him. Lacey assumes Bobby is a player who will only break her heart. Given Lacey’s past problems with men, it is understandable she would be cautious when it comes to matters of the heart. However, Lacey and Bobby spend months together. He proves time and again how much he cares for her. He is attentive, patient, and compassionate. Honestly, he is one of the sweetest heroes I’ve come across. Yet Lacey ignores the evidence that is right in front of her. Her continued insistence of pushing Bobby away went on far too long. Consequently, the pacing suffered a bit. However, I felt that Lacey and Bobby had great potential as a couple, and my patience and perseverance were rewarded in the end.

I must say I really enjoyed how Ms. McLean chose to tell this story. Ms. McLean begins each chapter with a section from the present before cutting back to the past. The changes in time period and point of view are clearly marked, and I never felt lost. Each section from the present reveals one more piece of the puzzle regarding Lacey’s stalker. As each piece clicked into place, I was able to figure out who the stalker was and what their motives were, but I still had no idea how Bobby and Lacey would find a way to be together. The solution was a bit unexpected. It was heartwarming, bittersweet, and very satisfying.

I’m glad I had the opportunity to read Beneath the Lake. Fans of time-travel romance would do well to pick up a copy!
